Getting StartedWritten by Chuck and Sue DeFiore
One of first things we do with our Partnering For Your Success students is to have them plan out how many hours they can spend on lease purchasing.
We know that many of you are working and want to start part-time. Well best way to do this is to take a calendar and to put in times you will work your lease purchasing business, or whatever business you want to get started.
Your initial planning is key. The number of hours you can spend, getting your identity package done, setting up your office, making contacts, making your calls, and setting your goals (both short term and long term). In effect, getting your ducks in order, being sure all your P&Q's are taken care of, and then just getting started.
However, first step is yours. If after doing all planning, you never make commitment, all is lost. You have to implement plan, and make commitment to follow through.
Realization of DreamsWritten by Chuck and Sue DeFiore
We all have dreams. Some of us dream about winning lottery and never having to work again (also most unrealistic dream). Others dream of going to college, retirement, travel. Still others dream of working from their home. Some even want to run their own business. Whatever your dreams are, realization of them is extremely important. We need our dreams to keep us going.
For many of us our destiny is based on what dreams we have for ourselves. Think of your dreams as mini goals. There are certain things you want to do over next month, over next three months, six months, or next year.
For those of you who believe your destiny is pre-determined and there is nothing you can do about it, I don't buy it. Yes, bad things happen. We all go through periods where it seems that nothing is going right for us. However, you can't sit there waiting for a miracle to happen. It doesn't work that way. In order to realize your dreams you have to make something happen. You and only you control your destiny and realization of your dreams. You have to set mini goals for yourself, and if you have trouble realizing those goals, ask for help. We all have something we are good at. Some of us, however, need help developing our skills. So ask for help. Don't just decide you can't do it. Also don't make your goals unrealistic. Start with small goals and work from there.
